Local Attractions

Visitors to Natchez often take carriage rides to view the Historic Downtown area and its impressive collection of 19th-century Commercial and Residential Architecture accented by fine structures built in the late 18th and early 20th centuries. (Tours start at the corner of State and Canal Streets.)

While Downtown, be sure to visit the Antiques Shops along Franklin Street, and the William Johnson House, which was owned by the famous African-American businessman and diarist during the Antebellum Era.

A stroll down Silver Street offers remarkable views of the Mississippi River as it leads beneath the bluffs to Natchez-under-the-Hill and the Isle of Capri riverboat casino.
Further afield, the historic towns of Port Gibson, Vicksburg and St. Francisville rest within easy driving distance of Natchez, as does the working cotton plantation Frogmore.

We visit Natchez at least twice per year. It is where I find my muse.

We always stay at Monmouth. Your hotel and staff are just wonderful.

Thanks for starting this blog so we may enjoy Natchez & Monmouth everyday.
